South Africa is a rewarding country to visit for almost anyone. As a tourist or visitor to the country, you can expect a wealth of unique sights and experiences, irrespective of any of the country’s nine provinces you visit. I however recommend that you see any of these three provinces at least; Gauteng, Western and Eastern Cape.
There are uncountable reasons to visit South Africa (SA) in 2021, hopefully by then the Corona hassle would be over and we will be able to travel properly once again.
You can expect the following when tripping to the Rainbow Nation of South Africa;

When you visit this southern most country on the African continent, expect to see stunning coastlines, dramatic mountainscapes, huge areas of untamed starkly beautiful semi-deserts, lakes, waterfalls, spectacular canyons, forests and wide plains.
And Cape Town, oh Cape Town… it is undeniably one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
Weather: The weather in South Africa could easily rank for one of best in the world… the weather in Nairobi, Kenya however out ranks it (in my view lol). But the weather in SA is rarely too hot, rarely too cold, and the sun shines most of the time. Visitors are able to get out and about as and when they feel like it without the angst of weather disruption… except sometimes with slightly strong winds in Cape Town that might affect schedules for cable car rides off the beautiful table mountain.
Adventurous Activities: South Africa sure has some of the best games and fun when it comes to the great outdoors and adventure activities. Whether you are an adrenaline junkie or you just want to get active and have some fun, you are able to choose from a plethora of activities such as bungee jumping and shark cage diving, to hiking, horse riding, whale watching, snorkelling, scuba diving, hiking and scores more adventures.
